Hi Guys,
Need some info on this pistol. So far a friend has identified it as a 1895 Krinka-Steyr made in Austria. I think it may be a little earlier then that. Maybe 1893/4. I'm not sure of the caliber or how many rounds it holds. I never worked the action when I examined it as the owner said not to. I took the pictures quite some years ago. It is unusual in that it is a Blow Foward action. Not many pistols were designed this way. The Schwarzlose .32 and the Japanese Komura are two. The Steyr-Mannlicher M1895 looks the closest to this pistol and the pistol may have been a prototype of it. It has no markings. The pistol wasn't in the greatest of shape when I took the pictures and I don't know what happened to it. The inclosed pictures are all the info I have on it.
